The Ochocinco family are getting off to an uneven start, at least in name.
When Evelyn Lozada and her NFL star fiancé got married earlier this month, she took on Chad’s superstar last name, Ochocino. Only, a few weeks after the nuptials, Chad — in a move he decided before the wedding— switched his name back to Johnson.
Evelyn planned to also make the change to Johnson, but after they were married. The only problem is Lozada has not received her official marriage paperwork yet. And she can’t legally change her name to match Chad’s until it arrives.
Making matters even more complicated: TMZ reports that Chad still wants Ochocinco to be part of his name, and that he’s adding it before the “Johnson” the following football season.
So when the name game is over, he’ll be Chad Javon Ochocinco Johnson and she’ll be Evelyn Alexandra Lozada Ochocinco Johnson… and we’ll all be fatigued trying to remember the monikers.
But, honestly, a name tied to the man’s family history suits a newlywed couple better than one tied to his Jersey. Smart move, Chad. Now let’s see about having some kids.
